action forum and was the congressional budget office director under president george w. bush. nice to see you, sir. >> nice to be here. >> greta: how bleak is this? >> this is a very, very big threat to the u.s. economy. the fiscal cliff itself is a combination of $400 billion in increased taxes, $200 billion in spending cuts. that combination $600 billion is about 4% of gdp. 4% of the national income. since we are only growing at 2% it doesn't take a genius to realize if you drop that kind of hit on it the economy will go into a big recession. >> greta: when do you predict, let's say that the tax cuts are not extended when did you you predict we are going into the horrible recession although many people think we are still in one. >> the concern is we are growing at 1.5%, 2% anded is taxes going from 15 to 45%. businesses looking at big increases in the classes. middle class is going to see their taxes go up with the alternative minimum tax. as the fall progresses we will see worse and worse economic performance and bear the brunt of the fiscal cliff in advance and i worry about that a lo

as for the nation. >> for some presidents, recent presidents have been so defining. what defines george w. bush's tenure more than that night on september 11th, 2001, or after the oklahoma city bombings with president clinton or with the "challenger" explosion. there are moments we remember and not in a kind of partisan divide that colors everything else we do here in washington, it seems. it's a way in which we feel we really count on the president as a leader of all americans to express what we are all feeling. >> bill clinton, oklahoma city. mark halperin, you have watched these leaders and the way they respond at moments, at times of emergency, and this is when as both president obama today and mitt romney described us as the american family. >> just the nature of our politics. barack obama has a reputation in some quarters of being aloof. mitt romney as being someone who can't relate to people. you saw in both their statements today, both referencing their families, both of them at moments like this, it's clear, think about their own families, their own human situation and what this would
on the bailouts, a lot of the same things with detroit, he just would have. you know why? because george w. bush -- >> did a lot -- >> basically did the same things. he wouldn't have gone forward -- actually, he may have gone forward to health care because the "usa today" op-ed in 2009 told barack obama you need to have an vidindividual mandate. >> there's not a big difference between these two guys. for my republican friends that get mad when i say that, go look at his record. it's right there. he's not a conservative. >> look, i mean how he governed in massachusetts. the health care law was the predecessor for obama care, right? romney came in, inherited a bad economic situation, talked about how he had to turn it around which is what obama is doing. he raised fees rather than taxes. obama has not raised taxes yet. i mean there's a lot of actual parallels between how mitt romney operated in massachusetts and obama operates. i'm not saying they're the same people. they have a different perspective on government. >> and different world view. i think one of the important things about this speech
, and my boss colin powell at the time and george h.w. bush cut about 25%. this is not a draconian cut, even if it's done by se questation. >> you've warned about the industrial complex, nice turn of phrase there. is there any way out of it. >> well, dwight eisenhower is the man we should give credit to that. i don't know anymore. that's an excellent question. my former boss, colin powell, mentioned about nine months ago or something about us having created a industrial terrorism complex, and when you look at the homeland security budget, you look at $100 billion-plus for the intelligence community and ask what are we getting for it, and you look at this complex that we've created, dana priest and bill arcon of the washington post did a great job of covering this complex. 800,000-plus security clearances now. this is unkons shabl and taking away the money we need in the united states, and this business of borrowing to pay for these wars is simply unsustainable. we're looking at an even greater deficit in the future and the d.o.d. and national security budget in general has to pay its p
. during the administration of george w. bush, the department of education published a highly respected study on tuition price increases and what caused them. if i'm the primary driver of tuition price increases in public institutions were over three quarters have earned a graduate student students attend college is a change in state funding i states invest less money in higher education institutions respond by raising prices. the study found no relationship between the availability of federal and state grants and the ensuing tuition price increases in either public or private not-for-profit institutions. institutions raise prices have an obligation to ensure that they increase their own financially programs to hold dunes. for example, last year our state cut michigan state university's appropriation by 15% on our board raise tuition 6.9% to compensate in part for these cuts. but the board also increased our own institutional grants eight by 10% with 83% of these great dollars for students with financial needs. this is an example of what institutions need to do with their own financiall
it together. >> and georgia h.w. bush did the same thing on social security and george w. bush and ronald reagan did councils. it's a ruse. councils don't matter. >> simpson-bowles? >> that might be where we agree. the jobs council is completely irrelevant. >> i hope not when you consider the economy is the issue and unemployment is at 8.2% consistently. wouldn't you try to fix it if you're the president? >> wait, is anyone at this table suggesting that barack obama is not trying to fix the economy? thank you. >> well there was a time when early on when during the health care debate where the jobs picture wasn't great and there was a time i was wondering does he not know it's in his best interests to get this jobs number in a much better position. >> 8.8 million jobs were lost in the recession, that's a fact of life, 4.4 million have been created, since the recession ended. i'm sorry, folks, if he's created or under his watch, half of the jobs have come back. >> meaningless number. debris with you. people don't feel jobs have been created, they don't feel jobs have been created. we it tal
. there is no credible evidence to support this proposition. during the administration of george w. bush, the department of education publishes a highly respected study on tuition price increases. it found that the primary driver of tuition price increases in public institutions where over 3/4 of our graduate students attend college, is the change in state funding as states invest less money in higher education. the institutions respond by raising prices. the study found no relationship between the availability of federal and state grants and the ensuing chore -- tuition price increases in public or private not-for-profit institutions. as institutions raise prices, they have an obligation to ensure they increase their own financial aid program to hold harmless these neediest students. last year, our state cut michigan state university appropriation by 15%. our board raised tuition 6.9% to compensate in part for these cuts. the board also increased our own institutional grant aid by 10% with 83% of these grants dollars going to students with financial need. this is an example of what institutions need to
not start with president obama or president george w. bush, and it is a single word -- medicaid. 30 years ago, state budgets were 8% medicaid. today, they are 25%. i know from my own experience, as you get down to the end of the budget process, after you find highways and courts run certain things, you get to the iwo pots of money, higher education or medicaid, the two pots of money, higher education or -- two pots of money, higher education or medicaid, and as long as states fund medicating a parental way, higher education will be seriously damaged -- medicaid in a preferential way, higher education will be seriously damaged. maybe you can come back to this, but despite all the things you can do with two-year degrees, where one-year degrees or operating in the summer, it seems, as we on leash the states from federal medicaid requirements, than our great public universities and community colleges will continue to be under-funded and tuition and loans will go up. the increase from 8% to 25% is by far the principal reason. to recommend mr. chairman. >> -- thank you, mr. chairman. >> i would
w. bush administration president obama talked about renewing the ban but dropped it from his agenda and won't talk about renewing it. there is an excellent article on this situation. we have 90 guns per 100 people. compare that to yemen where there are 61 guns for 100 people and americans purchased 4.5 million out of the 8 million guns informed worldwide each year. >> cenk: congratulations to us. we're number one. yemen is number two. if we keep it up, we'll be just like yemen or yemen may be just like us. i don't know which is worse. what is the solution. >> the big solution is campaign finance reform. you cannot continue to allow the national rifle association to write the gun laws. democrats have cowed to them forever. the democratic party needs--there is a big story with the 50-state solution with democrats, and there is a problem of overreputation of rural areas. the real answer is democrats need to have some balls on this issue. they need to come up and say we'll lose north and south carolina, but we need to control guns. >> cenk: i think the point michael is making is incredi
